The best game of all time. An educational game based off of an incredibly gory zombie shooter. Essentially a port of House of the Dead 2, except the zombies carry basic household items (plungers, spatulas, ladles) instead of axes, and all the main characters wield keyboards attached to Dreamcasts instead of guns. In order to defeat the terrifying zombies, you must quickly type relevant words like "Daffodil" and "Snapdragon." The terrible voice acting that was carried over from the original enhances the experience twofold.
Civilian: Oh no. Help me. I don't want to die.
Player: Loretta! Julia! Die-hard Roach! Sphagnum!
Frying Pan-Wielding Zombie: Uggh.
<Frying Pan-Wielding Zombie dies>
Civilian: Thank you for saving me. You can go out that way.
Player's friend: Dude, what the fuck?
Player: Don't hate, it's just Typing of the Dead!

A spin-off version of the video game, House of the Dead. Instead of using the traditional gun to shoot zombies, you are to use a keyboard to help practice your WPM (words per minute).

This version removes most of the scary elements, and replaced it with humor. (The main characters carry a Dreamcast on their back). Zombies throw spatulas instead of axes.
Newbie Gamer: I need to learn how to type because I suck.
Shop Employee: Assuming you play games, why don't you try the "Typing of the Dead?" Guarenteed to help you type faster and tear zombie ass at the same time!

The Typing of the Dead is the best typing game ever created. This awesome and unbelievable unique game, created by Sega and with the assistance of Smilebit(to remake the game into English), forces you to learn how to type correctly. Basically, this game is the house of the dead 2 except instead of shooting the zombies with guns you shoot them with your strapped-on keyboard. This game makes you type funny and sweet phrases like "geisha waltz", "nasal wig", "bahama mama", and "hot babes". In Japan Sega is working to release "The Typing of the Dead 2" so keep your fingers crossed for it to be ported to come to the US.
Dude 1: "Hey dude, wanna come over today and play some Xbox?"

Dude 2: "Naah, man. I'd rather play The Typing of the Dead. You get to type zombies to death."

Dude 1: "WTF are you talking about? The what of the dead?"

Dude 2: "It's the best typing tutor ever. It beats the hell out of Mavic Beacon. It's really simple: Type or Die."

Dude 1: "Fashizzle. I need to work on my typing skills myself. Let me see this game."
